  • Launching loony thoughts into the bending of your mind
    You reach for something high but it's a mountain that you find
    He's a king dust demon with an icepick smile
    His music fills your feathers as you feel your passions fly

    With the mustache man on the carpet of his van
    You can feel your fatty tissues giving way to sweaty hands
    And the woofers keep distorting and the tweeters kiss the girls
    His horn-rimmed glasses lights a square beneath his curls

    I have wasted so much time
    I have wasted so much time

    He is like a politician who is practicing a speech
    He is racing, he is pacing, he is sleeping on his beat
    As the sky begins to darken and the waves begin to roll
    You can feel the oceans rising as you're losing all control

    And meanwhile back at the Candlerock Lounge
    It is past 11:30 and your friends are getting down
    They're applying purple eyeshadow, drinking warm beer
    They're wondering where you went to when you told them you'd be here

    I have wasted so much time
    I have wasted so much time

    I have wasted so much time
    I have wasted so much time Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER GABRIEL NELSON, JOHN M MCCREA, VINCENT ROBERT DIFIORE, XAN DIEUDONNE MCCURDY
